Hyacinth is the flower of the sun idol Apollo and is a symbol of peace, commitment and beauty, but also of power and pride. The hyacinth is often found in Christian churches as a symbol of happiness and love.
Regarding its common name hyacinth, it comes with a legend. In Greek mythology, Hyakinthos was a young man admired by Apollo and Zephyr but he was killed by a discus in a jealousy fight between the two. The flower was allegedly named after him when it sprang from his blood.
